Real lighthouses rarely come up for sale, and lately it seems that many of the private structures have become available.

This one is located on Michigan Keweenaw Peninsula in Bete Grise Bay. Built in 1895 the lighthouse sits on one acre of land and is only accessible by boat across a narrow channel.

The station is a year round residence and includes a 2 story barn, boathouse with kitchen and bunks, oil house and more and two aluminum boats. The lighthouse keepers residence has electricity, well water and septic, stove, fridge, wood burning stove and comes completely furnished.

Asking price of the station is $500,000. Serious buyers can call 1-906 337-1458 for additional information.
